Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir doing some fancy loops, twirls and lowdowns for the first-ever Philadelphia Winter Pride. Those are correct figure skating terms, right?
On Friday, Philly Pride Presents debuted the first-ever Philadelphia Winter Pride with über-gay Olympic skater Johnny Weir. I mean, could they have found anyone better? From all accounts, the evening was a heckuva good time. Weir was presented with a Winter Pride award and guests had a chance to see the wunderkind do a few world-renowned twirls around the rink and pose with him in pics. G Philly correspondents Eric Manas and Christopher Brucks were there to capture the whole shebang in photos and video (see above). See them all after the jump.
